Castaways spell out ‘help’ on beach

By Around the Web

(NBC NEWS) Three mariners were rescued from an uninhabited Pacific island after a U.S Navy aircraft spotted the word “help” spelled using palm fronds on a sandy beach.

What was supposed to be a short trip between two Micronesian islands quickly turned into a “Gilligan’s Island”-style ordeal — but their “3-hour tour” turned into 3 days.

Lost in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, the men appeared to take inspiration from the Tom Hanks film “Castaway” before being found.
